NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for July 23, 2012

Andrew Garda@andrew_gardaFeatured ColumnistJuly 23, 2012

We're finally here—training camps kick off for all four NFC North squads this week, and hopefully we can stop focusing on arrests and start focusing on actual football.

Unfortunately some of our wrap up from the weekend involves, yes, arrests.

There is also plenty of good news as we head into the real start of football season.

Let's start with a positive item today.


Chicago Bears

Over the last few months, much has been discussed about Brandon Marshall's diagnosis and treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times has a great piece on Marshall's appearance as a keynote speaker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness convention.

Mental Illness, whether it be BPD or depression, is a real thing and can have severe consequences—I'm glad to see Marshall raising awareness of the issue.

Bleacher Report's Will Grant gives you 20 questions to be answered in camp.

Finally, Matt Bowen of the Chicago Tribune talks about what a rookie's first training camp is like.


Detroit Lions

By now you've heard that cornerback Aaron Berry was arrested again, this time for three charges of simple assault, allegedly involving a weapon.  Kevin Seifert talks about what the options for the Lions are.

As you may recall, today is the day that rookies report for training camp with the Lions—you can breathe a sigh of relief as Riley Reiff will be one of them after signing his contract.


Green Bay Packers

Bob McGinn takes a look at the Packers' offensive line.

Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee continues his look at the most important Packers on the roster with No. 3, Charles Woodson.


Minnesota Vikings

On a sad note, former Vikings GM Mike Lynn died on Saturday, and the Pioneer Press' Jeremy Fowler had a nice piece on him this weekend. 

Dan Weiderer at the Star Tribune gives you a look at the offseason in the form of quotes.
